Note: In the case of courses with multiple modes and where one mode has enrolments of less than six, we can combine the SECaT for these modes at the discretion of the course coordinator. Course coordinators must expressly advise the ITaLI Evaluation Unit if they would like to merge their modes into a single SECaT survey, by emailing the request to evaluations@uq.edu.au. If both modes have enrolments of six or more, they will not be eligible for merging and will adhere to regular policy rules (PPL 3.30.02 Course and Teacher Surveys).

SECaT results for Summer Semester 2021/2022 were emailed to staff on Thursday 24 February, according to data reporting guidelines. 

What is the SECaT?

SECaT evaluations provide students with the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience of course and teaching at UQ. Each time a course is offered, students enrolled in that course will be invited to evaluate their course and teacher(s) via an online SECaT evaluation.

For the majority of courses at UQ, the first email invitation will be sent to students at the beginning of Week 12 each semester. Students can access the SECaT via the link contained in the email invitation, the ‘Have Your Say’ module on the Blackboard welcome page (PDF, 203.7 KB) or via the Evaluations Portal.

SECaTs typically remain open for three weeks. Students are sent up to three reminders, usually five days apart.
